Title: Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise
Author: Sean Taylor
Illustrator: Jean JullienPublisher: Candlewick Press
Hoot Owl is no ordinary owl. He’s a master of disguise! And he will use his skill at camouflaging himself to trick his unsuspecting prey.
Animals of the night, beware!
Why you should read it:
I have a confession. I didn’t select this book because I thought I would like it. In fact I was initially turned off by the dark cover and Owl’s illustration. I needed a book to review beginning with the letter “h” and this one was the only one I could find at my local library.
Now I must admit I’m glad I picked this one. Owl is hilariously determined to grab some supper and his prey keep outsmarting him. I like how Owl looks at the world and I enjoyed how he solved his hunger problem. Younger readers will be amused by Owl’s adventures into the night.
